single space vs double space line formatting

a team member began a list of links (to internal pages) - I needed to append the list. The list started out single spaced but every time I hit the Enter key my text is double spaced, is there a way to edit this?

Check what current format is set. Is it in a "Heading"? "Paragraphed"? 

Thanks for the reply - I seem to be in paragraph, there are 6 levels of headings, a preformatted, and a quote mode, what mode should I be in?

The Paragraph format should do the trick. Alternatively, instead of pressing ENTER at the end of a line, press "SHIFT + ENTER" to disable all sorts of formatting.

not sure why paragraph mode is giving me doubt-spacing; but SHIFT + Enter works like a charm - thank you very much. Some boards allow assigning Kudos - don't see that here but you earned them, thanks again - lmd2

Ha! Glad to help! :) You can just click "Accept Answer" here.

Here is a way

Use a macro called "no format"
So be where you want to paste in the confluence document. Type a left curly bracket (uppercase the left square bracket), then start typing no format. Select the "no format" option. This creates a box that when you paste single spaced text it stays single spaced in the box.

When typing shift enter does single spacing, where enter does double spacing. This works in word and wordpad also.
